TRAINING DELIVERY

The delivery of training should adhere to the design of the curriculum. Delivery should be
guided by the 10 basic principles of competency-based TVET.

The training is based on curriculum developed from the competency standards;

Learning is modular in its structure;

Training delivery is learner-centered and should accommodate individualized and selfpaced learning strategies;
Training is based on work that must be performed;

Training materials are directly related to the competency standards and the curriculum
modules;
Assessment is based in the collection of evidence of the performance of work to the
industry required standard;
Training is based both on and off the-job components;

Training program allows for recognition of prior learning (RPL) or current competencies;

Training allows for multiple entry and exit; and

Training programs are registered with UTPRAS.

The competency-based TVET system recognizes various types of delivery modes, both on
and off-the-job as long as the learning is driven by the competency standards specified by the
industry. The following training modalities may be adopted when designing training programs:

The dualized mode of training delivery is preferred and recommended. Thus programs
would contain both in-school and in-industry training or fieldwork components. Details
can be referred to the Dual Training System (DTS) Implementing Rules and
Regulations.
Modular/self-paced learning is a competency-based training modality wherein the
trainee is allowed to progress at his own pace. The trainer facilitates the training delivery
Peer teaching/mentoring is a training modality wherein fast learners are given the
opportunity to assist the slow learners.
Supervised industry training or on-the-job training is an approach in training designed to
enhance the knowledge and skills of the trainee through actual experience in the
workplace to acquire specific competencies prescribed in the training regulations.
Distance learning is a formal education process in which majority of the instruction
occurs when the students and instructor are not in the same place. Distance learning
may employ correspondence study, or audio, video or computer technologies.
Project-Based Instruction is an authentic instructional model or strategy in which
students plan, implement and evaluate projects that have real world applications.
